7. That's a good question

I do read some of the surveys about the US - like Canada, our media carries way more of them than US media. Some I remembered and some I guessed.

17. why?

 

why take a poll from a place that conducted a poll and then pretends taking this poll proves your "IQ" on their poll. A bit too tail-bitey for me thanks.

20. It's more about being aware of how other countries see the US

I'm pretty sure it's mostly Republicans who don't care about such things.

28. well, no

 

it's mostly about the results they had. that's why I feel this is mis-labeled as an "IQ" test of some kind.

19. Kind of dumb. I just guessed every time.

I mean, how the hell should I know for sure when I don't even know which 20 countries they asked?I just figured zero was a good bet. And that's how I answered every question.
